Cover of Cocteau Twins' "Heaven or Las Vegas," in Spanish.

When my wife and I were dating (nearly 16 years ago), this album, along with a bunch of Spanish rock (Mecano, Miguel Bosé, Miguel Mateos, etc.), was in constant rotation in our CD player. This particular song was so important to our relationship that I translated (adapted?) Elizabeth Fraser's notoriously incomprehensible lyrics into Spanish (my wife spoke very little English) in order to sing it to her while strumming my guitar. Years later, I dedicate this version to her, Angélica, my heaven on earth...

Wow, Dave. It's so strange to hear your voice singing in spanish. But it works quite well.
Very nice tune, with your peculiar arrangements and production.
Angelica is a lucky woman. smiley

Yeah, most people don't know that I'm completely bilingual and that I taught AP Spanish Literature as well as AP English Language and Literature... "David Bowles" doesn't sound too Latino, heh.

So smooth and warm. Just like your romance (I hope). smiley

Not being familar with the Cocteau Twins, I went to the iTunes Store and listened to some snippets. I like your versions more (you've done other covers of their tunes). I like the snap you put into them.

It is David who is the lucky one. smiley

I am very familiar with the cocteau twins and I think this is the first song I hear from you that I actually fully understand and follow smiley - nice reminder of the past ... technically: very very good sound, really impressed me ... and your Spanish needs some polishing - just kidding ...

That story alone is worth 50 stars. Unfortunately(?) I stopped the stars thing.. but I can tell you that the last few pieces that youhave done, including this one are really phenomenal.

This is just good fun track. I can feel the love and fun vibes emanating from you here.

Thanks!
